Welcome to purposeful living today.
"And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do; the heads of them were two hundred; and all their brethren were at their commandment" ( 1 Chronicles 12:32).

God is a God of times and seasons, we don't jump from one season to another just because we think we are capable of moving to the next level without knowing what God is saying. This is why the Bible says there is time for everything and God makes things beautiful in His time. God has a plan your life and has a calendar for your life,  in His calendar for you there is a time for everything, the moment you choose to live outside God's timing you will struggle and all things will be ugly in your own time.  Most times we want things to happen now now. We don't want to wait since we know there is a way we can make things happen by ourselves.

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven" ( Ecclesiastics 3:1).

Since you can talk to the girl about a relationship right now, you don't care to know if it is God's timing for you. So you head into the relationship that last for 5 years and ended in heart break, wasting time, emotions and resources.

"He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end" ( Ecclesiastics 3:11).

God can allow you build a healthy friendship but did not convince you to begin a relationship with them. You feel like you have known each other very much and for some time now, so you think it is time to move into a relationship. Is that what God has said you should do?

"When God is saying friendship don't change it to a Relationship, it is better to wait for the next instruction".

Do you not know you can be with your future spouse right now having them as a friend but when go into a relationship with them you will both hurt each other, because it is not God's timing now for you to begin a relationship.

"The right person can look like the wrong person when you make decisions outside God's timing for you".

When a pregnant woman gives birth to a child in the 7th month, the child will be premature and will have to be kept in the radiant warmer or in an incubator until the maturity time. When you begin a relationship this kind of time you will struggle in the relationship, it will be from one heart break to another, in God's timing you have grace for that level or season but when you embark by yourself there will not be a flow of His Grace there, this is where people begin to live in sin and they try to please people at the expense of their relationship with God. This is where the person needs to study to gain knowledge about relationships.

"A little one shall become a thousand, and a small one a strong nation: I the Lord will hasten it in his time" ( Isaiah 60:22).

When a woman gives birth on the 9th month, this is her due delivery time, this is the allotted time for her. This has to do with God's timing for the delivery of your relationship, it is a time of maturity. In this time when you begin a relationship things will move at divine pace, you will experience His Grace. This is the time God sees you as matured enough to build a relationship, because He has coached you in the secret place.

When a woman gives birth on the 12th month, her delivery is long overdue. In relationship this time period is a long over due time which God has permitted you to be in a relationship. This is when there is delay and this is caused by ignorance and lack of spiritual sensitivity.

"Seek His due time for your relationship not the undue or over due time."

How to access God's timing:
You can  access God's timing when you have a personal relationship with God and you love God above anyone in your life. This is evident in the place of intimacy with God, where you spend time fellowshipping with God, in prayers and Studying His word. Seek God's will for your life in prayers. Ask him when he wants you to begin a relationship?

"Make God the centre of attraction in your relationship and He will make your relationship a centre of attraction to your world. "

It is dangerous for you to begin a relationship for the following reasons :
1. When your friends are in a relationship and you are not
2. Peer Pressure
3. Loneliness and depression
4. Fear of the unknown
5. Lust
6. To prove a point to someone who has hurt you or disrespect you
7. Emotions
8. Past Hurt from a relationship.

Why people don't live based on God's timing:
1. Age Barrier: You say you are not getting any younger, so you accept to begin a relationship when you know God is not leading you to be in a relationship. When you walk with God He will give you your spouse in His own time, all He needs you do is to align with Him in fellowship. Wait for your time, age not withstanding.
2. I Can do it: When you believe you can do it without God, you will not be able to subject yourself to God's timing. God's timing is perfect. It is true you can take the step right now, but is that what God wants for you now? This was what made Saul to lose his place as king. I can do it without God is disobedience to  obeying the will of God for your life.

Waiting on the Lord is Gaining not failing... "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint" (Isaiah 40:31).

3. The fear of what people will say: When you are obsessed with people and their opinion, you will do things outside of God's timing for your life. Focus on God not on people, He is capable of giving you everything you need.
It is my prayer that we will act in God's timing for our lives no matter the challenges we faced.

God bless you.

You can begin a relationship now with the lord Jesus Christ by saying this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ  I acknowledge that I am a sinner,  I believe in your death and resurrection.  I ask you forgive me my sins,  I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life.  I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name .Amen .
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
